Sony Pictures Entertainment has released the trailer for the upcoming movie “Where The Crawdads Sing”.
The movie, directed by Delia Owens from a screenplay by Lucy Alibar, is based on Delia Owens’ best-selling novel of the same name and tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. According to the official synopsis, “For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh”.
The cast includes Daisy Edgar-Jones, Taylor John Smith, Harris Dickinson, Michael Hyatt, Sterling Macer, Jr. and David Strathairn.
The trailer gives viewers a glimpse at the movie action, with Edgar-Jones’ character being the main suspect in the murder case that shocked the community. “Being isolated was one thing. Being haunted quite another,” she is heard saying in voiceover before being shown in prison, investigated by a detective.
“Every creature does what it must to survive,” she also says toward the end of the trailer, which features an original song from Taylor Swift.
“Where the Crawdads Sing”, produced by Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter, will be released exclusively in movie theaters this July.
